Wire fraud schemes targeting real estate transactions can start with something as simple as an innocuous-looking email and turn into a mistake costing thousands of dollars. Learn what you need to do to protect your business at a free webinar moderated by TAR General Counsel Lori Levy scheduled for 10 a.m. October 5.

A panel of experts—including Mark Lesswing, chief technology officer of NAR; Tom Moreno Jr., executive vice president for The Bank of San Antonio; Barney Schwartz of Preferred Guardian Insurance; and Jan Fite Miller of Century 21—will share advice from their respective fields.

My business laptop was hacked last week. I am still cleaning up and changing passwords due to the hack. I thought my computer was safe, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender and MicroTrend Software and still got hacked. They had my passwords and into the their sales pitch, they lied and told me my firewall was not good and I had to pay them 800.00 dollars to use their eternal fire wall. It was all BS and I got scammed. Since then I have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and Microsoft.
I hope everyone signs up for Lori’s webinar.
